years my husband and i have been together

Hi! I'm Mandie Schug of Alabaster Photos and my studio is located in the heart of New Richmond. I am a wife and mother of two amazing little girlie who are currently 3 and 5. I have photography roots in mall photography from the 90's, seriously the radest high school job!

Welcome to my corner of the web, where the beauty of maternity, the tender moments of fresh 48 sessions, and the pure innocence of newborn photography come to life. With a passion for capturing the essence of motherhood and the fleeting magic of those first days with your little one, I specialize in baby-led photography that embraces the natural connection between parent and child. Through my lens, I strive to freeze time, preserving the joy, love, and wonder that fill these precious moments, creating timeless keepsakes for families to cherish for generations to come.

My newborn photography sessions are carefully crafted to last between one to one and a half hours. Designed to be a peaceful and memorable experience, these sessions offer a calm respite for parents to savor the precious moments with their newest family member. From the gentle coos to the tender snuggles, every minute is dedicated to capturing the purest essence of your baby's first days. Relax and indulge in this intimate bonding time, knowing that each click of the camera immortalizes the love and joy that fills your heart.

Mandie was AMAZING for our maternity shoot! She gives great direction, is super friendly, easy to work with, and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera! She also had our photos edited and done in ONE day! Highly recommend her for any kind of photography service that you’re looking to book!
